is it possible to just vent the ccv into the atmosphere? thats what i did with my lightning. some guys used oil catch cans others just let it vent, i just used a mr gasket breather and a 90' elbo. can we do that with the diesels or is there to much oil coming through?
You can vent to atmosphere. I've been doing it for a while. I used a 1" ID heater hose down by the frame rail under the bed. There is a decent amount of vapor occasionally and I am often told that my truck is smoking.
Just changed out my cold side CAC pipe and not a trace of oil residue. Was very pleased.
I've always wondered why no one has done this, I did it to my race car, most drag racers do. But run the CCV to the vehicles exhaust. I know in drag racing applications it's done for different reasons. Why not run a hose from the CCV into the exhaust with a 1 way valve? Lets assume you have a cat and dpf delete. I get why you wouldn't if they are still in place.
If it was that easy everybody would do it.
